Abstract

Taking into account the strategic importance of education for the economic and social welfare, as well as the origins and meaning of the right to education in international human rights law, this paper examines the relevance of the right to the UAE and analyses the key elements that emerge from the UAE's engagement with the UN treaty bodies and special procedures, specifically, the Committee on the Rights of the Child, the Committee on the Elimination of Discrimination against Women and the Special Rapporteurs on racism and on the sale of children. Moreover, outlining the meaning of the dialogue undertaken by UN human rights bodies, its significance for promoting the role of the UAE in the international community and its relevance for advancing UAE education in a range of spheres, this paper examines their recommendations and suggests pathways towards enhancing dialogue and adopting a rights-based approach to education in the UAE.
